Hi,

Have been looking at Tilal6991's source and device tree found in github in relation to the Skate's unofficial CM7 nightlies.

A couple of questions:
  • Why is the kernel config not compiled in, this is suggestively implying something to hide?
  • Where is the latest skate kernel source from? Is it Tom_G's github?
  • That kernel is currently used in the CWM Mod which is blocking the recovery from cold boot, why is it that FTM mode is enabled by default?

This FTM mode is the block on the CWM Mod, preventing it from functioning properly from cold boot.

I have posted on another thread about this and am suspicious of the reason as to why CWM Mod is not functioning.

@Tilal6991:

A quick question and experiment for you to try out:

Can you compile your CM7 CWM using CM7's code via

make clean && make recoveryimage

Now flash that freshly build recoveryimage
fastboot flash recovery out/target/product/skate/recovery.img

then
fastboot reboot

Pull the battery and follow this:

Put the battery back in.
Power on and Vol + key - can you boot into recovery from cold boot? Yes/No? If yes, does it respond to hardware buttons? If no, you will need to pull the battery and put it back in again. Now, let the handset boot up as normal by pressing the power button.

From CM7's ROM, long press the power button to bring up a menu, select Reboot, tap on Recovery and tap Ok. can you boot into recovery from warm boot? Yes/No? If yes, does it respond to hardware buttons?

I need to double check with you and to confirm this by replying back here :)

Cheers,
B)


Can anyone confirm if there's a /proc/config.gz in their CM7 nightly ROM that is running on their Skate?

Cheers, B)

sorry, cant help.....haven't got tilals cm7 running because its faulty.... no gps, no bluetooth amongst other things....

Could you get skate an actual official slot in cyanogenmod with regular nightlies...?

we have an OrangeMC and a Skate complete rom dump and kernel 2.3.4 and kernel 2.3.5....

Am going to go out on a limb here and recompile a new skate kernel.... without the FTM mode.

But without the config.gz this is going to be problematic as to what config options were set in this CM7 nightly's kernel.

Okie, where can I find the rom dump?

Btw, Kernel 2.3.4 and 2.3.5, that is incorrect, that is referring to the Android's Gingerbread version, 2.3.4 and 2.4.5, the actual kernel is version 2.6.35-7. :)

Hey t0mm13b I've dumped the config.gz before to help kallt_kaffe build the OC kernel...

I've uploaded the /proc/config.gz to http://www.adsar.co.uk/skate/config.gz, and also an uncompressed version @ http://www.adsar.co....kate/config.txt

Thanks for that, but... hate to say this -

CONFIG_ZTE_FTM_FLAG_SUPPORT=y

<- that looks like trouble for getting into recovery from coldboot. :)

I have uploaded a new version of our cwm mod with a freshly recompiled kernel that has the above flag disabled!

So here's hoping that the recovery does indeed start from cold-boot and responds to touchscreen activities.

Philmein: can you try this out and see if this works from cold boot. :)

Cheers, B)

I use Tom G's blade source. The configuration is under cyanogen_skate-defconfig

Ho okie :)

well its not exactly an ideal configuration as there's pcmcia cards, infra-red drivers and few other config options that's classified as default configuration, and generally on the whole deemed useless... :)

Will wait and see what Philmein says about that recovery image. :)

Here's the kernel config that I used that will get around the coldboot problem.

Here are the two rom dumps with no clockwork thanky to Sebastian and modaco guys....

Does the kernel you've posted fix things like GPS and Bluetooth in Tilals skate cm7....?

I'd have to install Tilals cm7 rom and then flash the kernel to see if there are any changes....

Here you go :)

Make sure you have a backup of the existing boot.img before proceeding to flash via Clockwork :)

Of course usual disclaimer applies - am not responsible:
  • smoke coming from Skate or Skate is "getting high" from vaping
  • weird ROM behavioural issues
  • unicorns appearing magically after flashing
  • planes fall out of skies
  • dog ate the usb cable

:D :lol:

Please do let me know how that goes for you :)

Cheers, B)

Ok I'll give it a go, if you think it might solve the Bluetooth and GPS problems...

Why is your boot.image only 2.9MB and the other rom boot.images over 4MB...?

Excess drivers such as Infra Red, PCMCIA stuff... :D

Mind you that is the kernel only iirc... was looking at it earlier on.... :)

But would doubt it would fix the Bluetooth, GPS, as that is more likely a misconfiguration of the ROM built - using a wrong BoardConfig option prior to building the CM7. As for the Bluetooth - that definitely could be down to missing proprietary lib/binary that kickstarts the bluetooth or incorrect reference to it in /etc. :)
